Food is a big part of weddings nowadays and can be a great way to add personal touches to your big day from slaving away over favours such as homemade jam, honey, chutneys & personalised biscuits to reflecting special times in our lives such as time spent living abroad or special destination holidays.
Bespoke, unique & inspirational ideas to add the wow factor
You can include a love of food within your table plan names, or within the menu itself such as our very popular antipasti platters, an informal sharing starter, which creates a fun and an informal dining atmosphere. What about an ice cream sundae bar featuring make your own dessert with soft scoop ice cream perfect for a summer’s day or picnic inspired ideas like scone stations filled with homemade lemon curd, jam and cream?
The highest quality food sustainably sourced in Cheshire
A wider part of the present food revolution is ensuring all your food is of the highest quality and sustainably sourced. At Benjamin Lauren this is very important to us as a family business and also to many of our couples. We use the best ingredients Cheshire has to offer but we also use family recipes and cooking traditions a flexibility that enables us to reflect a couple’s heritage within their wedding day but also bring two families together.
Take a look at a couple of our recent Cheshire weddings to see how we worked closely with the couples to add pizzazz to their wedding day with a totally bespoke menu.
A magnifique Cheshire wedding day with a fantastique couple
This amazing wedding at at Abbeywood Estate in July 2017 included French themed sharing platters to start and Coq Au Vin for main course during the wedding breakfast to reflect Lucy’s time living abroad. A make your own ice cream sundae bar for dessert was loved by everyone!
An amazing Cheshire wedding day with a picnic themed wedding breakfast
From the outset Sarah and Rick they wanted something different that reflected them as a couple and the wedding atmosphere they wanted to create. Their wedding day featured a beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony on the main lawn, ice cream canapés, a picnic themed wedding breakfast with highlights including a selection of different individual pies and a scone station. The celebrations finished in the evening with a delicious hog roast – perfect to enjoy on a beautiful spring evening.
